Dr. Joe where are you? Because this really needs to be submitted to a Week 6 GIF Contest.

Hyperbole(1). It was only an amazing auton; what would have made it epic would be accidentally running into the switch fence and mistakenly dropping the cube into the switch. Lucky that it didn't tip over, though.

(1) I'm sure if your parents told you once, they told you a million times not to exaggerate.

Re: Best Autonomous EVER ... (?)

Ha! True, no need for hyperbole, just state the facts. However many revolutions, (factor of 360). This auto would rank up there in revolutions per second with the top skate/snowboarders.. I'd say.....and with that balance all the way through to take off into teleop. Nice

Reminds me of our match in 2016 when they enabled the robot (gyro) before rotating the robot 180 degrees. https://youtu.be/hUVRgM-HVWI (center blue)
